    What does the commercial MyEclipse have, that the open source Eclipse hasn't?

    He was referring to the fact that some company has taken Eclipse, slapped it on a box and charged a yearly "membership" fee as well as rebranding it "MyEclipse".

    The names a bit confusing to me. Isn't it more "MyEcplise" when its .. free? If I'm paying for it then I think its really "YourEclipse" that I'm just renting. Or maybe the My just refers to them in the first place.

    It's not a buggy piece of shit like WTP is. Granted, MyEclipse actually uses components of WTP, just not the buggy ones (app server support for example, which is very important).

    If I really need to pay for an IDE, then I would buy IntelliJ IDEA [], Eclipse is good as a free tool, it is fantastic as a free tool, but I scarcely see it giving a run for IntelliJ IDEA as far as usability and features are concerned. Of course there is a plugin for everything in Eclipse, but that in my opinion just makes it that much complicated.... Even in free tools I see NetBeans getting far ahead in the long run against Eclipse. A recent Eclipse user.. and IDEA convert
